Designer Lindsey Carter of  Troubadour has once again procured a collection of must haves for fall.  This season she drew inspiration from the Weiner Wersktatte movement, a progressive alliance of artists and designers in Vienna, Austria during the early 1900′s.  Her play on patterns and mix of textiles are her signature style, with each piece standing on it’s own.  With accolades from WWD and Charleston Fashion Week, this local designer has made huge strides in her 4th year of designing on her own.  View more to see my Q & A with Lindsey and more pictures from her gorgeous fall look book.

Anna Glac of  Anna Bella Florals, shows her elegant artistry in every arrangement she creates.  Her boutique floral shop on Calhoun displays a romantic array of arrangements that anyone would swoon over.  She recently branched out and started to create headpieces made out her signature flowers catering to brides and bridal parties.  So it was a match made in floral heaven when she collaborated with legendary New York milliner Ellen Christine for a capsule collection of custom floral headpieces. A chance meeting in New York at Ellen’s showroom during the Hats of the World Luncheon brought these two visionaries together to create one of a kind headpieces inspired by the beauty of the south.  These custom floral headpieces are an ethereal combination of mother nature meets couture.
